Gliga I Cello 1/2
A beautiful European instrument tailored for the advancing student.
In the Gliga workshop it is only the most experienced builders that practice their hand with the higher grades of wood selected for Gliga I instruments. These expert craftspeople draw on decades of knowledge as they graduate the plates with precision and artfully tune them to produce these fine cellos. The traditional oil varnish is carefully hand applied so as not to hinder the instrument in any way, and together these processes result in a rich, well-rounded sound audible to the discerning ear.
The fine, straight grained spruce continues to age and so the sound 'opens up' the more the instrument is played (and these cellos certainly deserve to be played often and well). The book-matched flamed maple back exhibits striking flame, and is also matched to the solid maple ribs.
- Solid spruce top
- Solid maple back, neck and sides
- Stradivari pattern
- Made in Romania
Cello fittings selected by Bows for Strings to deliver the best performance for the instrument, and include: Despiau 3 tree bridge, Larsen Medium Cello strings and Wittner Tailpiece.
